After last nights weather it was a real treat to see the sun again this morning. I had planned on an outing with the Pentax 6x7 but the sunlight streaming through the windows illuminated a block of crystal on a table and made me think of a studio set-up instead.
I had got the polar bear a couple of months earlier but I couldn't make my mind up how to shoot it. I wanted to put it in a not too un-natural setting, something that felt icy and remote. So, when the crystal lit up this morning and resembled a block of glacial ice, I suddenly thought of the bear.
Given the weather reports are suggesting snow in the next couple of days it may be an apt image!
